A rainy day at Blacktoft

I chose Blacktoft Sands today because with a forecast of heavy rain I needed somewhere with hides plus there was always a chance of something good dropping in (no such luck), there was a decent selection of Waders present including a Wood Sandpiper plus still a good number of Spotted Redshanks although only single Black Tailed Godwit and Little Egret today. It was not really the weather for Raptors but it fared up for a couple of hours mid-afternoon enticing the Harriers out and an immature Peregrine went through as well.

quite a few Green Sandpipers around plus a couple of Commons
